New Nasa study reveals the cold waters of the earth`s deep oceans have not warmed since 2005.
A new NASA study has revealed that the cold waters of earth`s deep oceans have not warmed measurably since 2005. Scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena California analysed satellite and direct ocean temperature data from 2005 to 2013 and found the ocean abyss below 1.24 miles has not warmed measurably. The temperature of the top half of the world`s ocean, above the 1.24 mile is still climbing but not fast enough to account for the stalled air temperatures. the new paper published 5 October in the journal Nature Climate Change used a combination of satellite and dsirect temperature data to estimate how much sea level rise is due to deep warming. The answer is not much. From the total amount of sea level rise, they subtracted the amount of rise from the expansion in the upper ocean and the amount of rise that came from added meltwater. the remainder represented the amount of sea level rise caused by warming in the deep ocean.
